Divorces are difficult and trying events. Don’t add to the stress of the experience by making some common mistakes with your social networking. Recently, a Time magazine article discussed the implications that social networking can have on a person’s divorce case. The article noted that it is now commonplace for divorce attorneys to use information gathered on social networking websites to bolster their case against their client’s ex-spouse. Information gleaned from social networking sites can be used to catch spouses in lies and improper behavior. This information can affect the outcome of asset distribution, child custody, child support, spousal support, and other important divorce issues. For the full Time article, please click here.
If you are a member of Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, or other social networking websites, you should be very careful about what you post online. Do not post information relating to marital property, spousal support, child custody/care, or other personal information that may be relevant to your divorce case.
